Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means it’s time to either make your reservation at The Boathouse or put on your chef apron and start cooking! We hope that you will be joining us for the holiday but even if you can't make it, you can have a taste of The Boathouse at home. We're sharing the recipe for our maple roasted local heirloom squash! It’s one of our big crowd pleasers at our annual Thanksgiving buffet and is sure to wow your guests at home. Give it a go and let us know what you think!
All good things must come to an end and Virginia Spirits Month is no exception. We hope that you had a chance to stop in to try one of our three limited edition cocktails during September. But just in case you didn’t we decided to share the recipes with you. It’s time to bring out your inner bartender and let us know which one is your favorite!
Your wedding day can be one of the happiest days of your life and it may also serve as a wonderful opportunity to include those that you love in this new lifelong journey that you are about to embark on. Your guest list might include distant relatives or significant others of close friends. Oftentimes these guests may not have had the pleasure of getting to know you and your fiancé as a couple. Life gets hectic and schedules pull people apart but that doesn’t mean that your guests have to be completely disconnected from your relationship during your wedding events.
To connect our guests to the local artisans who provide the ingredients we use at our restaurants, we created Our Story. During Our Story events our local vendors make their rounds to each Boathouse location and Casa del Barco to share their mission and provide you with a taste of their product. This month we have linked up with the masters of craft beer, Stone Brewing!
I’m a little sad to see this blog series come to an end. It’s been so much fun sharing my wedding journey with you from start to finish. I’m really grateful to have the opportunity to document these moments. Hopefully my journey will be helpful for some of you current and future wedding planners!
This summer has definitely been one for the books! It even brought about the creation of our brand new partnership with celebrate! RVA! We enjoy reaching out and getting involved with our community because we know that without them we would not be able to do what we love.
My husband (at the time, future husband), and I decided to do a first look and also exchange gifts before the wedding. He was getting ready at our house so I had the photographer drive me over so we could get some photos of the gift exchange and also see each other before the ceremony. I know it breaks tradition but I am SO happy I did this. It just made me feel so safe and happy and just reassured me not to “get all crazy” and that I could handle this.
The Boathouse is committed to providing guests with locally sourced cuisine. We believe that it’s not just about the flavor of the food (although that’s pretty important too), but it’s also about the quality.
The big day has finally come to an end! After months of arrangements and countless hours meeting with vendors and planners, I have officially tied the knot! This experience has definitely been unlike any other and I have to admit I am a little sad to see it all come to an end.
The Boathouse and Casa del Barco feature a different local vendor every month as a way to connect our guests with the source of the local food that they receive at our restaurants. For the month of June we featured Chapel Creek Oyster Co. for Our Story.
The Boathouse and Casa del Barco feature a different local vendor every month as a way to connect our guests with the source of the local food that they are receiving at our restaurants.

They have made their rounds at all of our locations throughout the month and will be making their final stop Thursday, May 24th at The Boathouse at Short Pump Town Center.
